Our last day in the 60s!!! A day of celebration--because we are one step closer to the start of Boise State football. Today we are going to talk about—Kellen Buhr

Height: 6' 1"
High School: Capital High School, Boise, Idaho
How'd he get to the Blue™?
After a stellar prep career for coach at Capital, Buhr was offered and accepted a preferred walk-on spot with the Broncos in 2012. Following in the footsteps of many local kids like Tyler Shoemaker, he continues his work for an athletic scholarship.
Just hopefully he has plenty of milk.

Unfortunately his Boise State highlights are few. He appeared in 12 games last year, but mostly special teams.
From high school: Buhr was named first-team All-Southern Idaho Conference and first-team all-state as a senior, following a second-team All-SIC selection as a junior. He was also named Capital High School's Male Athlete of the Year for the 2011-2012 academic year. His biggest accomplishments to this point may have occurred off the field as he was awarded a Senior Scholar Award and academic all-state and academic All-SIC. These accomplishments, coupled with his selection as Capital's student body president, capped a wildly impressive prep career.
Though injuries do happen, they did not seem to be a bug for the o-line. Odhiambo was injured, as was Baggett for a point, but after that? Not much. The interior, for which Buhr is slated, does not appear to have any changes. Averill, Henry, and Yakoo made 14 starts last year and, surprise, they are all returning. And it appears that even if there were some other movement, it would not be to Buhr's benefit. I like to think this coaching staff gives every opportunity for these athletes to succeed. And that everyone gets a fair shake to make things happen and make an impact. Buhr being a local kid would be a fantastic story for a rise from walk-on to superstar. But that does not always happen. He has two more years to make it, and for that I root for him.
Is he on Twitter?

Completely Made Up Fact
Buhr decided to dress as Waldo for Halloween. He then proceeded to get lost. Due to the coaching staff's propensity for finding overlooked athletes, they were able to find him safe and sound at Ann Morrison Park.
